Hi Daniel,

Great idea! We are currently working on similar program here in Indonesia
called University Roadshow.  The goal of the roadshow is to train
university student how to support local disaster management agency in data
collection. We are visiting 13 University and give socialization and
training on OSM, QGIS and InaSAFE. We can share our curriculum if it helps
you in implementing your ideas.
